Depression can be a debilitating experience in which there is a loss of hope and a darkness that covers the light. I've worked with many clients over the years suffering from depression and have been able to walk alongside in a way where there is a lifting of the symptoms and a renewed & freed spirit. Depression can accompany loss or be related to childhood trauma that needs to be worked through. I use an integrated approach in treating depression to include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), solutions-focused therapy, psychodynamic, and expressive arts therapy.

At the center of depression is buried life force, but the causes of depression can be complex and varied. So first we work to find the source of the pain and negative self-concept. The counseling can take place in conjunction with medication or without. Therapy centers around interrupting depressive thoughts and behavioral patterns, healing old wounds and often, for Highly Sensitive & Gifted/Creative clients, re-framing their challenges as gifts and augmenting social skills. Often in this population there is a long history of anxiety that has interrupted the meaningful social connections they yearn for, caused adrenal fatigue and created hopelessness. Re-establishing Self-Compassion is key.

If you find yourself in an everlasting state of feeling down, blue, lethargic, despairing, or stuck, welcome to the the realm of depression. The good news is that just like physical pain, depression is an emotional pain, it is a symptom and not a bad thing in and of itself. It is there to tell you that something is not quite right. Just like when we feel physical pain, and we check that part of the body to see what damage may have been done in order to help ourselves, the same is true with emotional pain. Since depression is one of the most common and wide encompassing emotions, it can be a murky one to work with. In the therapy setting I will help you get to know this dark place with you.

The symptoms and causes of depression are unique to the individual who experiences them. It is important to consider the unique circumstances of the whole person. This means considering biological factors, social factors, emotional factors, spiritual factors, and thought patterns that may be leading to depression. I help clients explore the root of their symptoms and help them develop strategies for dealing with their symptoms and root causes. I address shame and help clients move towards greater self-compassion throughout the healing process.

Depression can be completely debilitating. If you are suffering from depression, you've probably heard "what do you have to be depressed about?" from well-intentioned loved ones. The negative stigma that society places on those suffering from depression may have prevented you from seeking out help in the past. I recognize that depression is very real, and is NOT a character flaw. Together, we will explore your past as well as the dynamics of your present life to identify experiences or underlying unmet needs that may be contributing to your depression, and work together to determine the most effective way to alleviate your emotional and physical pain.
